I picked up a used 18" x 16" computer monitor at the county landfill for free. I brought it home and strip out the guts, because all I needed was the frame. The landfill received the guts back the next day. Next I went to Office Depot and had them print out my layout on peel and stick sign paper to the size of my screen. Then I stuck the layout picture to a piece of foam board and that became my layout screen. The next step was to add (18) Evans Bi-Directional LED's for the switches and added (10) more for the sidings. With lots of wiring this is the finished project which works perfect. Prior to building this display I was using controllers to operate the (18) 022 switches and (10) normal SPST toggles to operate the sidings. Now, due to adding (3) SC-2's and (1) eMylo DC 12V (16) channel Wireless Switch Module I eliminated the need to manually do any switching or manual toggling and just sit back and watch the display switch colors. By the way I did add a piece of plexiglass on the front to protect the print out and it's held in place by a piece of Velcro on each corner.
